How to come up with original names
- Pick an animal or strong symbol: Select a wild animal that is strong or a brave profession such as a knight, warrior, or ninja.
- Choose an adjective: The most popular adjectives are colors. However, you can also use bellicose adjectives or adverbs such as fighting, rioting and so on.
- Use a pun. If you have an inside joke, use it. You can also make a pun using a regular name, and then change one word into a funny term. You can, for example, choose something like The Soaring Eagles and then change Soaring to “soreing” as you’ll get sore from the practice.
